Imagine a football team.
The players on this team don’t like each other very much. They argue a lot. They disagree about most things. Most of the players have been playing football for a long time. They trained hard and played in college and junior leagues and worked their way up to the pros. They know how to run plays and score goals. However, none of them seem to like running plays or scoring goals very much anymore. Mostly, they just argue with each other and talk about what they will do when they become Coach.
Today’s doodle is brought to you by my mom’s birthday! Happy birthday, Mom!
Today’s drawing is in honor of Tom Kurzkanski’s birthday. Why an octopus with a party hat and a cupcake? Who cares! It’s an octopus wearing a party hat and holding a cupcake!
All right, let’s try this again. I’m all moved and settled in, so there’s really no excuse not to keep drawing, eh? Keep me honest, people. Today’s doodle is thematically appropriate.
Today’s drawing is inspired by some PowerPoint graphics I have been working on for a freelance client, and is dedicated to my Seattle friends.
Between scuba lessons, scuba homework, late hours at the day job, and preparation for New York Comic Con, last week was … busy. On top of all of this, I was commissioned by a friend to build some brand identity assets for her new company, Field by Field. She was a terrific client and actually managed to make the job feel like a respite during a hectic week. Here is the final logo we agreed upon (horizontal and vertical versions).
Clicking the image will take you to the mini site I designed. This was a fun project, and I hope to work more with Field by Field in the future!
This week has been bananas, which is why today’s drawing a little late. My week has been bananas because Heather and I are taking scuba lessons. I was thinking about how strange and alien we must look to reef creatures—wrapped in awkward gear, completely out of our element—and wondering what that would be like if the roles were reversed. So, I doodled down the SCOLBA (self-contained on-land breathing apparatus) fish. His name is Ryan.
